How to Disable Copilot AI Responses in Bing Search


Like Google, Microsoft has now started to show its Copilot AI results in the Bing search engine. Now, if you open the Bing search engine from any web browser and search for a term, you will likely see the AI response first.

The web results are still there, but the AI responses are shown at the top, pushing down the results. This could annoy many users because the responses delivered by AI chatbots are usually very slow and yield inaccurate results.
